  • Is it Viking? Or even Celtic.

    Paul
    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

    • I think its a Chinese sword. Although the last picture shows signs of Damascus Steel forging. So I'm not sure. But that's my guess.

        Close enough. I guess this was a bit too obscure. It is a Tibetan longsword, called a ke tri. It is a fairly modern version of the style (19th century) and the style of forging is "piled" or "watered-steel". What we know of as Damascus Steel is actually taken from ancient India. High carbon steel was in use in the Himalayas long before the west "discovered" it!

        • Okay, Try this one:








          Rear view.

          Hint- It is a relatively new Russian naval weapon.

              • Correct. http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...sia/shkval.htm
                We need to build a active point defense system, I'm thinking a modern variant of the Hedgehog antisubmarine system. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedgehog_(weapon)

                  • Re: Name That Weapon

                    It looks like a Shillelagh AT missile for an M551.

                      Nope, but its roughly the same size though.

                        • Is it a Russian weapon? Fired from a 155mm gun??? I'm to busy to look it up but...

                          • TOW anti tank missle maybe?
                            2013 I'm going into West Point if it kills me. 2017 (or 2012 depending on West Point) I'm joining the Airborne if it kills me and it actually might.

                            • Okay, I think i got it. It is a Refleks 9M119 AT-11 SNIPER. I'm not completely certain, but I'm pretty sure...

                              • Nobdoy has nailed it yet, allthough some have been sort of close.

                                More help:
                                • It will fit in a 120 mm barrel.
                                • Look at the picture and try to identify the different components. Do you for example see an engine? No... (so what proppells it?)
